37 farm sales transactions have been forwarded to the Institute of Colonization during the first half of 2013. Farmland transactions in Uruguay concerning properties of over 500 hectares need to be reviewed by the Institute. In the period January – June 37 farms have been subject to this procedure. The records show sales in different regions, mainly Tacuarembó (6x), Soriano (5x), and Durazno (5x). Upon request we can provide more details about the sizes of the plots and the prices per hectare paid in 2013.
